My work at the Bureau began in 1979 with geomorphic research applied to feasibility of isolation of nuclear waste in the Palo Duro Basin. I did similar work on the Low-Level Radwaste Project, then shifted to work on low-permeability sandstones, analyzing surface lineaments and wellbore ellipticity to characterize in situ stress regimes. Since 2010 my work has focused on mudrocks in the Midland Basin, using core-based data to characterize basinal facies in unconventional reservoirs.
